Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to explore the streets for clues on The Newcastle Spy Mission Trail. It’s a self-guided adventure which will take you all over the city on a hunt for Geordie gems!

Over a 2 mile route and 22 clues, you’ll need eagle eyes and serious problem-busting skills. Begin the trail at the north end of the iconic Millennium Bridge and, if you're lucky, see it being tilted! From here you’ll cross several lesser known bridges and discover hidden historic sites, all the while keeping an eye out for leads on signs, plaques and buildings across the city.

The route has been written with little adventurers in mind so kids as young as 6 can take part. It’s also easy to use with an instantly downloadable PDF trail so you could pick any day, pack a picnic and step out the door. Now go crack that case!

  • A self-guided trail across Newcastle
  • 22 dastardly clues to solve
  • Designed for kids
